MetroWest Conference For Women Announces Date For 2018

FRAMINGHAM – In September 2017, almost 550 women attended the first-ever MetroWest Conference for Women in Framingham.

Sold out a month before the inaugural event, there was a wait list of more than 100 who wanted to get tickets to the Conference.

The mission of the Conference was to “inspire, connect, motivate, and move women through every stage along their path” at a location in their own backyard – MetroWest.

Today, February 7, MetroWest Conference for Women founder and president Jennifer Maseda announced the date for the 2nd Annual MetroWest Conference for Women.

The Conference will be on Thursday, September 20, with a VIP event on September 19, at the Sheraton in Framingham. Tickets will go on sale later this spring.

“We started this platform of highlighting and supporting MetroWest women as an example of what’s possible in every local community,” said Maseda, president of MetroWest Conference For Women & She’s Local, Inc. “The women who speak at the Conference and those that attend are your neighbors.  You see them at the grocery store, on the soccer field, and at the gym. Through our upcoming conference and the months in between, local women are finding their voices, meeting their professional goals and personal aspirations by supporting and encouraging each other.  Our platform gives women a local access point that everyone can afford and no one should miss.”

More than 2 dozen women and one man served on the Conference board to create and present the inaugural conference in 2017.

“Building upon the success of last year’s MetroWest Conference For Women, we anticipate this year’s Conference will help even more local women both personally and professionally. All this at an affordable price point, right in your own backyard, making it truly accessible to all women,” said former MetroWest Chamber president Bonnie Biocchi, and vice president of the MetroWest Conference for Women.

“Last year, the MetroWest Conference For Women provided a great opportunity for our employees to learn from women in business, entrepreneurs and authors in their own communities.  Women had the opportunity to network with other amazing women in the region and left feeling inspired and empowered to take the next steps in their own lives,” said Conference treasurer Stephanie Kenney, a community relations manager at BOSE Corporation. “I would encourage area businesses, both large and small, to consider supporting the event this September to continue to bring  local, accessible opportunities to the women of MetroWest.”
“The personal, local level of support and collegiality during last year’s MetroWest Conference For Women lasted long after our September event.  A stronger support network of women who can pick up the phone, text, or message new business and personal friends and leaders was created and continues to flourish,” said Conference Board member Beth Reynolds, who is the Economic Development Director for the Town of Ashland.
